It’s heart wrenching to hear stories like yours. To lend some insight, I have most of my patients on estrogen blockers as well. This is something that I find necessary even though we replace to the normal range only. We recommend against GHRP-6 and all growth hormone treatment, so I cant’ speak directly to that. His testosterone dose is higher than what I would start a patient at, but it’s not exorbitant. That, however, is only part of the picture. Proper dosing is dependent upon the observation of how a patient reacts to a dose over time. So, that dose could be entirely too high for him even though I would say it is on the spectrum of normal dosing in general.
Testopel ( testosterone pellets), the male sex hormone, is a steroid used for testosterone replacement therapy in adult males for conditions associated with low or absent testosterone in the body such as primary hypogonadism ( congenital or acquired ), hypogonadotrophic hypogonadism (congenital or acquired), and to stimulate puberty in carefully selected males with clearly delayed puberty. Common side effects of Testopel include more erections than normal or erections that last a long time, nausea, vomiting , changes in skin color, ankle swelling, changes in body hair, male pattern baldness , acne, suppression of certain clotting factors, bleeding in patients on blood thinners, increase or decrease in libido (sex drive), headache, anxiety, depression, inflammation and pain at the implantation site, and rarely, a serious allergic reaction ( anaphylaxis ).
DEPO - Testosterone (testosterone cypionate injection) is an androgen indicated for replacement therapy in the male in conditions associated with symptoms of deficiency or absence of endogenous testosterone including, 1) Primary hypogonadism ( congenital or acquired ) - testicular failure due to cryptorchidism , bilateral torsion, orchitis , vanishing testis syndrome, or orchidectomy; and 2) Hypogonadotropic hypogonadism (congenital or acquired) - gonadotropin or LHRH deficiency, or pituitary -hypothalamic injury from tumors, trauma , or radiation . Common side effects of DEPO -Testosterone include:
